Symptoms that indicate a defect in the immune system

The immune system designed to protect the body from external threats sometimes begins to attack the body's own organs and tissues.

Yevgeny Nasonov, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, pointed out in an interview with aif.ru that it is difficult to diagnose autoimmune diseases, because their symptoms are pain in the muscles and joints, fatigue, depression, irregular heartbeat, and shortness of breath, all of which are characteristics of other diseases and conditions, including fatigue after contracting the disease. viral.

In addition, there are other negative trends - such as late diagnosis and over-diagnosis, and it is not known which is worse. On the one hand, the patient can be saved from autoimmune disease in a very early period, but then the person feels completely healthy and does not need to see a doctor. But the presence of a problem with him can only be detected by autoantibodies in his blood.

On the other hand, the presence of such antibodies does not mean that a person needs urgent treatment. Because there are patients who live for a long time with high numbers of autoantibodies and do not develop the disease. Immediate initiation of treatment is also fraught with complications, because inappropriately prescribed medications can lead to serious side effects. Not to mention, these medications are expensive.

But autoimmune diseases can be diagnosed by subjecting people whose relatives suffered from autoimmune diseases to examination, because they are in the risk group because their probability of contracting the same or another disease is 3-4 times higher. They must be under constant medical supervision.
